I don't knowwhen the idea was conceived, but it was lame from the beginning. It didn't work what is the sense of protecting stocked fish from harvest?

I agree with Mo. This doesn't seem to make sense if, in fact, the original purpose was to protect fish during the early season. If this is a water temp issue why not close them AFTER June 15th? It wouldn't surprise me if the PFBC has received complaints from local fishermen and rod and gun clubs about these closures and they are simply trying to keep the customer happy with more trout fishing opportunities.
I'm not familiar with these waterways - they're mostly upstate and, I would guess, they're mostly tribs that run into larger
ATWs (?). I usually try to send the PFBC my comments on these sort of reg changes but if we can't discern the purpose of the reg it's hard to give 'em an honest vote.

Mike ought to be able to shed some light on this.

My thoughts exactly. There is a refuge area on Swift Creek near Poe Paddy State Park. To my knowledge this stream section is not stocked. Since the native trout are brookies, it would make more sense to make the refuge during the summer and fall. I believe C&R Fly fishing and DHALO's are a better approach.
